The latest Giving For Sport data confirms the enormous opportunity for philanthropic growth in the sport and physical recreation sector with $76.8 million in donations made to sport in FY22. Despite another record year for philanthropy, only 1% of annual giving in Australia is going to sport.
The coming “Green and Gold” decade brings many major sporting events to Australia and a renewed focus on increasing and broadening sport participation. To reap these economic and social dividends over time, sport needs more investment now and philanthropy should be a core part of that funding strategy, adopted by all sporting organisations across Australia.
In this report, we highlight the current state of giving for sport and analyse the funds donated to the ASF for the benefit of Australian clubs, sporting organisations and athletes.

The Australian Sports Foundation is Australia’s national non-profit sports fundraising organisation and charity, and the only organisation in Australia to which donations for sport are tax-deductible.
The ASF have distributed over $600+ million to Australian sports clubs and athletes over the past 37 years through our online fundraising platform and community sport grant rounds; this has helped strengthen local communities and develop an inclusive and active sporting nation.
We are committed to an Australia where everyone can play.
